Video_how_to_demonstration_videoSearch any Connecticut address to compare aerial imagery from two time periods, side by side. Our default map displays 1934 versus the current satellite view (with additional layers from the 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s to come). For example, view the influence of post-war interstate highway development on urban neighborhoods (such as the I-84 exchange in Hartford’s Parkville neighborhood), or suburban commercial and residential development on formerly rural farmland (such as WestFarms Mall in Farmington/West Hartford).
